DescriptionBobcat Ridge is a line of huge boulders, Monastery in likeness, that has a few existing routes, (10-12), with potential for many more. It has a shady side for warm summer days as well as some sun baked exposure for those cool days. The approach is a short (5-10 min) uphill hike. Existing climbs are a variety of top-rope, bolted, and traditional. As far as is known, this is National Forest property, but there is private land near so be considerate of that.
Eds. We have been informed that this crag is on private property. The intentions of the landowner is not clear at this time. At a minimum, keep a low profile and clean up any debris/trash you find here.
Private Property Details
Please note this crag is located on private property. Consult the Larimer County records department for clarification.
Getting ThereTake US Highway 34 west of Loveland to Drake, and go right on County Road 43. 1/4 mile up from here is a turn onto a forest access road. This is the same road as Combat Rock, S and M Wall, Monastery, and Cedar Park Slab. Continue up past the switchbacks, and park at the Combat Rock pullout. Cross the road to the East and wind your way uphill to the obvious line of Rocks. These rocks are very visible from the last switchback prior to Combat Rock, but do not park there. A private drive is near by. There is lots of potential and a few existing routes.
